My FIL wants to know what my husband wants for his birthday. He wanted to get him a scope for his rifle, but my husband won't use it (he hasn't even seen his rifle in 7 months, it's in the top of our closet) and I asked him what he wanted... we discussed it and essentially, we both, for our birthdays, anniversary, Christmas, etc, just want money. That sounds horrible, but the best gift anyone could give us, instead of spending money for STUFF is to just send the cash to help keep us afloat, as our income barely covers all our expenses, and won't help us pay off our debt.
I don't want my FIL to send more than he was willing to spend on STUFF, but I also don't want to be hounded about what my husband spends the money on either!
What to do?

Most people have a false sense of what their personal property is worth. It's not like real estate at all and even with real estate, most people are not pleasantly surprised.
